Instaprevue
Easy, Live Source Selection
This receiver incorporates InstaPrevue visual port management technology, making input source selection much easier. InstaPrevue provides a live video thumbnail of the available content on your devices connected via HDMI. You no longer have to remember that your gaming console is connected to Port 3, or your BD player to Port 1, for example- you can see what's playing and choose accordingly.

MHL
Watch Your Smartphone Content on TV
The front-panel HDMI port is designed for the connection of mobile phones and other portable electronic devices using the new MHL standard. MHL allows you to display full 1080p video and still images on your HDTV with up to 7.1 channels of surround sound. Use the receiver's remote to control playback from your phone as it receives a handy recharge.

Direct Digital Connection: The Cleanest Your iPod Can Sound
The front-panel USB port lets you play MP3 and AAC stored in an iPod/iPhone, and MP3, WMA, AAC, and FLAC audio files stored on a flash-memory device, and you can use the system's own remote for track selection and playback. Your music will sound much cleaner and clearer, as the audio signal is transported in digital rather than analog form through the direct digital connection.

Have an Apple TV? The Onkyo remote is preset to control Apple TV.
Use it with your Onkyo A/V Receiver. It's all integrated, and it all works together beautifully.

Audyssey for Onkyo
Audyssey Room Correction: You'll Hear The Difference
  • Audyssey 2EQ tailors multi-channel audio for your home theater speaker set-up by measuring three room positions and applying a resolution filter to the satellite speakers to correct for room acoustics.
  • Audyssey Dynamic EQ® maintains a consistent bass response, tonal balance, and surround-sound effect at different volume levels, so you can enjoy the natural dynamics of your content regardless of the volume.
  • Audyssey Dynamic Volume® automatically compensates for volume fluctuations in different audio content, for example, during commercial breaks, while optimizing the dynamic range.

Save Power With Hybrid Standby
Hybrid Standby provides 'HDMI through' functionality while the receiver sleeps, so you don't have to fully power up to watch a Blu-ray or play a game using just your TV's sound. The receiver also maintains a local network connection when on Hybrid Standby mode, so you can switch the unit on at any time using the Onkyo remote apps for iPod touch/iPhone and Android.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Multiple HDMI ports, internet connected

Cons: Outdated UI, apparently not durable.

Other Thoughts: My receiver made it 1 month over 2 years and now experiencing frequent internet connectivity issues and intermittent sound output issues. Up until this point it was a good receiver that met expectations. Now I may have to wait upward of an hour for sound to be output, meanwhile the video signal to the TV is still functional. The UI seems outdated and is reflected in the Android remote app. Have sent 2 unanswered emails to Onkyo customer service, through their website, and just spent 15 minutes listening to hold music attempting to call customer service only to finally receive a message saying no agents available and to leave a message. Not satisfied.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price!!
Features - You cant get better features under $300.00
Wi-Fi - Pandora easily connected. Adapter purchased separately.
Nice On-Screen Display - GUI not outdated
Good remote if just a little light and slick. Controls everything, SAT, BluRay, TV. One Remote.

Cons: Delay in switching source to actually viewing it. For example loading a bluray. It will take 30 sec or so to get the receiver to output the signal from the bluray through the receiver, to the tv. Kind of annoying but minor.

Other Thoughts: Pondered a Yamaha, Denon, Pioneer, Sony, even a Marantz. None could beat this receiver for features vs price. Yamaha would have been my second choice. Their on-screen display was a little 90's for my taste.

5 out of 5 eggsAwsome

Pros: Works much better than expected. Replaces my PC and/or video converter box. Aux HDMI input in front is also a nice feature. Good GUI

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The only thing that would make this a PERFECT system would me a HDTV tuner built in.

2 out of 5 eggsBad ethernet

Pros: Lots of features. Would be perfect if it worked properly.

Cons: Ethernet plug failed to work on my unit.

Other Thoughts: Read through some other reviews that mentioned quality control issues with these Onkyo receivers, but i fell for the features and tried anyways. Lesson learned.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Receiver

Pros: Easy setup, I like the on-screen guide and controls. Loud clear output.

Cons: My only real gripe with this receiver is that takes too long to switch modes. When I'm using my HTPC, I only hear about 1/2 of the startup sound and the first few seconds of audio are missing from everything while I listen to the receiver make its loud audio source switch clicking noises.

Spotify setup was a bit of a pain, need to go to their website to get your ID (facebook login not allowed).

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Great sound, powered zone 2 (though I haven't used it yet), and internet radio services (with wifi adapter).

Cons: The three point sound calibrator is a joke, just use the single (better yet, do it manually). And the HD component video inputs only let through 480 or 720... one of those. Moral of the story is, you can't hook up an Xbox or Blue ray to the component video unless you downgrade its video output. Doesn't bother me so it still gets 5 stars.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Sound

Pros: Very clear sound. Easy to use interface put on TV screen for even better use. Sounds great. HDMI all work well and are labeled and passive pass-through for when TV speaker will do. Plenty of digital collectors for my use and internet radio makes for even more nice sounding music. Power enough to push my 4 8-inch floor speakers and 12 inch sub-woofer to window rattling but crystal clear sound.

Cons: None
